I think my PC must have just frozen up at home. It seems to crash somehow but I still find the fans running. Doing a clean shutdown still keeps the PSU and all the fans running too. Not sure what happened to the four and a half year old. Powersaving options are disabled - it's not hibernating or going to sleep.
Anyway, I'm thinking of moving my refresh schedule up from February to a few weeks out.
I've been meaning to hold out for the Bulldozer... Are there any reliable sources that it will trump Intel's current offering? If not, I might just go with a 2600k.
If anyone has heard anything, please post! I've not paid attention to the CPU world recently.
I'd be replacing the case, mobo, RAM, CPU and perhaps even the PSU. I think the GFX should be able to hold out for a while longer.
